What's the math in this game?

Children are practicing flexible thinking when they examine cards by both number and shape. If two cards don't match by number, they might still match by shape! Flexible thinking is an important executive function skill for young children to practice. In this game, players need to be quick, but they also need to be sure! If a player shouts "SNAP" and their cards don't match, the other players get to keep the cards.
